Lilongwe on Saturday turned into a hub of songs as choirs came together to treat residents of the Capital City to Christmas carols during a free-of-charge concert organised by Umodzi Park.

The concert at BICC brought out the finest from the choirs, namely Kaning’a CCAP Praise Team, Lilongwe Community Choir, Area 47 Seventh day Adventist Youth Choir, Music Crossroads Model Choir and St Patrick’s Catholic Choir.

Minister of Tourism, Culture and Wildlife Michael Usi was one of the high-profile people who patronised the event.

Usi, who is also an artist, hailed Umodzi Park for organising the event which pooled interdenominational groups to serve Christmas carols.

“I am very happy to be part of this event because it has brought together people from different churches to celebrate together with joy, love and peace, this being the festive season. We need such events annually to strengthen relationships between churches and Christians,” the minister said.

He called upon people to embrace a culture of giving during the festive season as a symbol of love.

Umodzi Park Chief Executive Officer, Steve Lwanda, said they enjoyed the concert and that, apart from hyping the festive season, the event was part of thanksgiving.

“This is one way of giving back to the community in Lilongwe and also thanking people for their support,” Lwanda said.

He appealed to people to celebrate the festive season responsibly.

“We should always remember that it is a season of love and giving; let us give to the less privileged, let us love each other and that is why Jesus was born,” Lwanda said.

Music Crossroads Model Choir Director Gladson Msendera said they enjoyed performing Christmas carols with other groups on the day.

“Music is a great tool that can bring people together in sorrow or joy. We need to sing for the Lord during this festive season and we are happy people embraced it,” Msendera said.
